Castor installers implemented the Internet in very harsh conditions as the camps were still being built. Castor was the winner of the tender issued by UNOPS earlier this year. Edwin Cras, Managing Director of Castor, states: “UN tenders are very competitive and attract bidders from all over the world. Castor Networks was selected based on its strong local presence with local staff In South Sudan combined with a successful track record with previous UNOPS connections and long list of NGO projects.”
